José Antonio is 28 years old and Maria Magdalena is 27 years old; they are from Ensenada. They have 2 children: Alejandra who is 5 years old and is in kindergarten; and Wendy who is 9 years old and is in fourth grade.
Maria had Wendy when she was 17 years old and Alejandra when she was 21; she had problems with the father of her daughters, so they separated. She was a single mom for two years and made her money cleaning houses and apartments, but after that time she started a relationship with José Antonio, who she has known since childhood. José moved in with Maria and her family. 3 years later they decided they needed their own place, so José, Maria, and her sister decided to buy a property together with a loan.
They have lived on the property for 7 months. They built a small room with wood scraps and other materials they were able to find. José Antonio works in a cardboard box factory earning 1,100 pesos per week (Around 60 USD), Maria doesn’t work.
Maria desires a safe home for her daughters, one where animals can't get in and they are protected from rain, heat, and cold.
